Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers

Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth by Oliver Jeffers promotes environmental responsibilitysocial awarenessrespect and appreciation.
 

Oliver Jeffers’ inspiration behind Here We Are was his new son and his desire to introduce him to “the big globe, floating in space, on which we live”. Here We Are encompasses the mountains and oceans, space and constellations, and the animals and people who populate the Earth. 

The handwritten facts throughout the book are a gentle plea to care for the planet and each other. “People come in many shapes, sizes and colours. We may all look different, act different and sound different… but don’t be fooled, we are all people.”
